Abstract: In the following article the case of the Somali Bantu refugees is analysed and ways inter-gender relations are strongly affected by the process of receiving aid during forced migrations are described. The very organisational procedure through which humanitarian aid is provided act as empowering and disempowering groups and individuals among the migrants; such procedure often pushes inter-gender power imbalances.

L'articolo analizza il caso dei rifugiati somali bantu e descrive le modalità in cui le relazioni tra i generi sono fortemente influenzate dal processo di distribuzione dell'aiuto umanitario. Tali procedure si traducono in un'affermazione di potere da parte di certi gruppi e a scapito di altri e provocano, inoltre, la rottura dell'equilibrio relazionale tra i generi.
